Solid Recovery Effort From Dallas Duo

Yesterday, on our list of miserably performing shooters from Monday night, we made a point of citing the usually reliable Mavericks duo of Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Terry.  Between the two of them, they shot 4-for-19 from the field and totaled 13 points as the Mavs fell at home to Cleveland. 

Suffice it to say the tandem didn't stay down for long.

The Mavs waltzed into San Antonio and wiped out the Spurs on Tuesday night by a 98-81 score.  At the helm were none other than Nowitzki and Terry.  The former scored 30 points on 13-of-24 shooting from the field, while the latter went for 29 points on 13-of-21 shooting. 

That would be a combined total of 59 points on 26-of-45 field goals.  We spell the math out for you only to illustrate the absurd contrast between the production of two Dallas Mavericks and the entire San Antonio starting lineup on Tuesday: 19-of-44 from the field, 49 points.

The 0-3 Spurs are off to their worst start since 1973, and with no Manu Ginobili, their rotation after Tim Duncan and Tony Parker is just disgusting.  Rough times there.

Kudos to Dirk and JET for a nice comeback evening.
